like inspiring how awful they are. >> how could this happen? you look back at president obama. the first digital president. how well he ran his campaign. do you think david axelrod would have let only six people per day donate to obama's re-election? i doubt that. >> or if they would have admitted it. when gur governing, it's different. if the president wants an answer to something like how many people enrolled in obama care, that's an answer the president could get. if they wanted to. the number is obviously low. i'd love to imagine the scene of what it would be like to go in on wednesday morning in the oval office for the meeting with the president and have to have to him only six people signed up for obama care. that would have been a very embarrassing moment. >> by the way, if you have six per day in order to get to the 7 million you need, it's 28,417 years. no wonder they're holding back the number. even if the number's 6,000 when they finally release them, it doesn't matter. the system can't -- it will never be where they needed to be in march. they have to, right now, p

." tonight the obama administration official in charge of the disastrous health care overhaul was finally dragged in front of lawmakers today. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testified before a house committee. she dodged questions, made up facts and continueses to be dishonest with the american people. in a moment we'll have people who participated in the grilling but first the highlights. >> madam secretary, while you are from kansas, we are not in kansas anymore. >> let me say directly to these americans you deserve better. >> here we are five weeks into enrollment and the news gets worse by the day. >> the president said if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. is he keeping his promise? >> yes, he is. >> my insurance policy was cancelled. the white house website says if you like your health plan you have, you can keep it. did i hear it wrong? >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of health care.gov. >> i think it's great that you are a team player taking responsibility it is the president's ultimate responsibility, correct?
, people at work, people in your neighborhood? who do you trust on obama care? all the coverage out there and everything that's taken place, especially this week. this week has really been a very interesting week. but who do you trust, and what influences you? you know, when i was growing up, there was a lot of news in the '60s. my mom was a high school english teacher, my dad was an aeronautical engineer, he worked for the government at the norfolk naval air base, and when they would come home, we would have dinner. it was pretty traditional back in those days, you know. we sat around the table and watched the evening news. it was walter cronkite. i'll tell you what. my mom and dad, they trusted walter cronkite. i mean, if he said it, that was it. that's the way it was. do you feel that way about peach you watch today? i would like to think that you trust me. certainly, there's no comparison between his accomplishments and mine. that's not where i'm going. what i'm going to is, you know, i want you to trust me. and i want you to know that i have my opinions. but i don't make stuff

, they boh live, not just in the land of political reality, but in the land where barack obama wins. he won the district in virginia where the congressman comes from. and they won the state of ohio. so they know that the american politics are diverse, ideologically, policy wise, generational. so they know, to be successful politicians have to operate within those confines, the people, ted cruz and others are self-selecting, self-seg gra gaiting and coming up with this success that only relies on people who think like they do. >> howard, i'm not going to quit on this point. i like immigrants, especially people who come here legally and play by the rules. he did that. his father's from cuba. he just got here from canada. and yet he gets to dictate to everybody on the north, everybody's a minority. the blacks who were here for 400 years, at least a lot of them. are they americans? how do you get to dictate this stuff to america to your convenience. it's awesome. it's an awesome arrogance to talk like this, we americans. >> you don't get to dictate it, chris. and i think it's up to people withi
in. tonight's lead, the president hits back on health care. today president obama went toe to toe against all those right wing critics who have been slamming the affordable care act. just a short time ago in boston, the president addressed to those critics head on and told them to explain themselves. >> it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scare people now are the same folks who've been trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning. and i've said before, folks had actually good ideas, better ideas than what's happening in massachusetts or what we've proposed, for providing people with health insurance i'd be happy to listen. but that's not what's happening. and anyone defending the remnants of the old broken system as if it was working for people -- anybody who thinks we shouldn't finish the job of making the health care system work for everybody, especially when these folks offer no plan for the uninsured or underinsured or folks who lose their insurance each year. those folks should have to explain themselves. >> if republicans have a better plan, t
on the line. after fighting for fairness, is it the rich riding highest in the obama economy? i'm christine romans, and this is "your money." it was just two weeks ago when it seemed the president had won his latest battle. >> the way business is done in washington has to change. >> but with an obama care fiasco bringing any momentum to a screeching halt, has he lost the war? a president whose signature legislation has turned into a national punchline. >> so if your doctor's only giving you three weeks to live, you are screwed, okay? >> whose spy agencies are tapping allies' cell phones. >> i guess the real question is who's in charge? the president doesn't seem to know if he's spying on our allies. >> the president says he didn't know about it. the only thing going the president's way these days, the economy. at least for those with the money to take part, the dow and the s&p 500 hit all-time highs again this week. corporate profits roaring back. and a housing rebound. but you need cash and good credit to get in the game. so what happened to promises of an economy focused on fairness? >> t
for accessing obama care. it will happen thu tomorrow. another wrinkle none theless in a pr disaster. >> the failure of the obama health care launch is a disaster. >> making a first impression that the white house did not want. this matters, obama care affects one- sixths of the u.s. economy. not to mention your own economy. why healthcare.gov is going off line again. >> one of the nation's busiest airports is in the seen. >> it is like a dream. it was not real. it was so intense and not normal to hear that. >> the attack like this tests our resolve and who we are and respond. the line of fire and recovery. >> in moments, the now evidence that the killer may have had a specific target in mind. and a city's response in the face of tragedy becomes a point of national pride for all of us and celebrating boston strong. i am harris faulkner. down again. healthcare.gov that is linking americans to health care exchanges will go off line in a few hours from now. the site will be down for an extended fix. something that the website sorely needs. it is plagued since day one. you can count the
one of the first obama administration officials to be questioned directly by congress in this debacle that has been the obama care website rollout. have a listen to how it went. >> despite our democrats opposition to part d ten years ago, we committed to making the best of the program. and because of all the changes that have occurred in part d prescription program, 90% of seniors right now the are satisfied. and why are they satisfied? well, are in my district, before that was vote, i made seniors know that i was going to vote no and opposed and i told them two reasons. the gap, the doughnut hole when you're paying for premiums you're not getting any benefits. that was horrendous and number two, no one was an outside source was not sitting down and being the third party to the negotiate the prices of prescription drugs. so it lost. we lost the policy fight. and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we're -- we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did. and ho
. >> my contention is that the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. >> now, we can debate economic policy. we can debate how you aid those low income americans. but the disdain, the almost demonizing and denigrating of people because of the economic status, that to me is inexcusable, e.j. >> i think so too. they're acting as if all these folks have mansions right next door to donald trump on public benefits. they act as if all these folks don't want to work. one of the insidious things in the house bill is that they say they have a work requirement. but that's not a real work requirement, because states can cut people even if they're unemployed, even if they're looking for work, even if they can't find jobs that they want to take. and the state is under no obligation to help them. that's not a work requirement. that's just punishing people because the unemployment rate is high. and so it's crazy to talk this way about our fellow citizens and i agree with you. i think it's wrong. >> congresswoman, but there is
to people? >> the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out. >> keep familying from falling into poverty. >> if that's not putting people back into chains, i don't know what is. >> well, some folks just see the world differently. don't we? great to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching "the ed show" here on msnbc. there's some things in government, there are some things in this country, that you simply cannot separate. farmers and food. real basic stuff. you know that we have the absolute best farmers on the face of the earth? that we can produce more, our technology is so advanced as opposed to the rest of the world. we are the bread basket of the world. we can produce enough food to feed the world if we wanted to. that's how good our farmers are. that's how good our universities are. our research, and our technology. and let's not forget the equipment that is made here in the united states. it is the bread basket. it is the key to america. it is the key to a stable society. we have seen, and history has showed us today that this is what happens when people go hungr
in the line of duty. we'll have a live report from lax. who takes the fall for the botched launch of the obama care website, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius apologizes on capitol hill. is it enough? we'll talk with congresswoman marcia blackburn and how big of a problem is this for the president. governor mike huckabee will join us as well. boston strong, stronger than ever. fans pouring into the streets to welcome the world series champions red sox. we'll take you there live. hello. this is america's news headquarters. live in the nation's capitol. it starts right now. >>> we're hearing some of the chilling stories emerging from that rampage at los angeles international airport. leading the coverage, standing by live at the airport is dominick. >> reporter: uma, the fbi is looking into the background of paul ciancia, they believe is the gunman. that's how they identified him yesterday. they're also searching his apartment which is just east of hollywood here. they believe that after messages he stoent his family that his intent was to harm tsa agents and as he went throu
rights. >> fox news continues to spread lies and deceit about become care. >> obama and his socialist party wanted to take over one sixth of the economy. >> medical devices, all kinds of crazy things, contraception. buy our own breast pump and birth control pill. >> this is just too good. >> it's not insurance. it's welfare. >> they're afraid of it being popular. >> all i ask of fox and everybody else to provide the content. >> you're taking away their choice. >> and i believe in choice. except obviously in marriage and reproductive rights. ♪ >>> it's been a week of setbacks, delays and partisan bickering and i am not talking about the outrage over the obama carolout but the judicial system. three major decisions this weekend. new york city, texas and latest in washington, d.c. first, right here in the big apple where judges from the 2nd circuit put to a stop to the decision issued in august that would have forced changes to the city's stop and frisk program. the reason? not the substance but the role of the judge who, quote, ran afoul of the code of conduct by compromising the quot
's miguel almaguer, thanks. >>> let's go to politics. new today, president obama sending this message to both parties in congress. work together to pass a budget. >> here's the bottom line. congress should pass a budget that cuts things we don't need and closes wasteful tax loopholes that don't help create jobs so that we can free up resources for the things that do create jobs and growth. building new roads, building new bridges and schools and airports. that creates jobs. >> meantime, republicans are doubling down today on the problems that be have plagued the obama care website with senator dan coats of indiana delivering the weekly gop response. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, their experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it it is more than just a website and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> well, the white house released a progress report late friday on the website fix saying it is improving with users now waiting an average of
in the cr we passed a law that president obama signed. quote, prior to making such credits and deductions available, the secretary shall certify that the exchanges verify such eligibility consistent with the requirements of the act. here's the question. are we really verifying at the front end whether a person is actually eligible for these subsidies or not? and here's why this matters. if they're not eligible for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're ask
-play nachlg -- explanation. i have a feeling this may not be the end of it. >>> today, president obama went to the very spot in boston where mitt romney signed romney care into law. and there, president obama defended the affordable care act. >> president obama is expected to share the limelight. >> so health care reform in this state was a success. >> president obama is minutes away. >> stop in boston by the president. >> from a critical speech on his health care law. >> let's face it. we've had a problem. >> website glitches. >> website hasn't worked the way it is supposed to. >> no doubt about that. >> no excuse for it. apologize. >> i am accountable to you for fixing these problems. >> taking the blame. >> kathleen sebelius. >> we were wrong. we must fix it. >> a few committee members. >> had their rehearsed one-liner. >> to be played on cable news. >> some people like to drive a ford not a ferrari. >> has a man ever delivered a baby. >> of come on in the water is fine. >> toto, we are not in kansas. >> the proverbial, we are not in kansas any more. >> you are from kansas. we are not in
might think. also this morning, data the obama administration would rather not see in the bank. six. not 60 or 600 or 6,000. just six. that's the number of people who apparently successfully enrolled via healthcare.gov on the first day it went live. you know what they say. the road to hell is paved with good intentions. left over halloween imagery for you there. a deep dive to the effort to fix campaign cash laws that set washington on a course for dysfunction. good morning. it's friday, november 1st. i'm always thinking about another race ahead and another contest. at 1600. let's start with the first reads of the morning. we will talk weekly round up of all things. hillary clinton is not exactly hunkering down and keeping a low profile. in case you missed it, she has an aggressive fall schedule. as impressive as any potential presidential candidate. over the last ten days, a flurry of speeches and fund-raisers has taken her from buffalo new york to chicago to beverly hills. this afternoon, pennsylvania. she key notes the conference for women in philadelphia. it ends a week where we
at virginia, it's a purple state. it was red, it's become more blue. it's gone for obama a couple of times. but it's very close. it's a changing state. growing hispanic population. it's like the country in some sense. >> the numbers are almost exactly the same as the numbers nationally. >> exactly. and you can see cuccinelli is getting killed in the polls. in large part it's because he's very far to the right. he's also tied to governor bob macdonald who has had had ethics problems. and the government shutdown. the republican identification with the government shutdown, i think, was a huge factor in this race. and will be a huge factor on election day. >> i always see interesting coincidents. coincidental facts. a third that say they don't like the republican party nationally say they're voting against cuccinelli in the other race. two-thirds saying i don't like republicans, i'm not voting for a republican. that's pretty stark evidence of what's to come. this may be the first primary for 2014 if you look at it that way. >> i think it really is. there's another since you guys love numbers,
responsible for healthcare.gov rollout became the first obama administration official to testify before congress. until today tavenner had largely avoided scrutiny from republicans who have instead preferred to train their fire on her boss kathleen sebelius. >> i understand you're not publicly releasing those numbers but i'm asking, do you have any idea of on a weekly basis how many people enrolled in how do you not know how many people have enrolled? >> we'll have those numbers available mid november. >> while the sniping over the website persists in committee, republican leadership is out with a new message. we're over the website. >> the problem with obama care isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> the problems go well beyond a flopped website. >> it is clear obama care and flaws are much more than the website. the website is the tip of the iceberg. >> this week republicans smelled blood in president obama's claim no americans would be kicked off their existing plans. >> let me repeat this.
. we need to send barack obama back to chicago. send him back to kenya. [ applause ] >> send him back to kenya? this wasn't a one-time joke. senator cruz's father has said similar things plenty of times. often at tea party events. >> when obama campaigned in 2008, it was very clear he was a socialist. one of the things in obama care is that for the elderly, every five years you must have end of life counseling. translation, suicide counseling. not much different than that friend that left behind in cuba. governing just like a dictator like fidel castro. >> this is vile stuff. so why should anyone care what a senator's father says or thinks? because rafael cruz himself is a rising star in the gop. a tea party hero who is a prime example of how extreme and hateful towards president obama the right wing has become. he does joint interviews with his son. they speak at the same anti-obama care events. they get the same adoring treatment from right wing talkers. and the senior mr. cruz even gets shoutouts from other far right senators. >> by the way, i see my friend rafael cruz here this mo
. >> reporter: in some cases they will pay less because of the subsidies in obama care. >> tom coburn had a lot to say about. this more coming up in mid week. wendal, here's alisyn. >> we are joined by tom beven, executive of real clear politics. >> hi, alisyn. >> put aside the problems, but the sticker shock that people are experiencing. the la times talked about for middle-class californians, they are experiencing big price increases, why? >> good question. that piece we cared in real politics and got a lot of attention. you have putting aside the tech california glitches. those are the least of the administration's worries, because we have the sticker shock. you have middle-class americans now, those folks who are not going to receive subsidies they are finding out when they go on the web site or try to find coverage, they are going to be charged in some cases, 5, 10 times what they might normally pay. it is significant amount of money. and those stories are going to continue to be out there. >> it is not just california, but in california, average price increase is 30 percent for the premiu
lifetime. al gore in 1999, barack obama for president only in 2012. only for reelection and now chris christie. >> he has a long list of products he has liked to endorse. gold bond powder, the icy hot patch is among them, too. what chris christie is doing, this is really about the black vote. he is trying to argue that he can get the black vote. it looks like he is on pace to get about 30% of the black vote. he has prominent endorsement from black preachers in new jersey. he is going to be making that argument in 2013 that he is a different kind of republican. between african-americans and latinos and he is going to get a pretty good majority or slice of that in his pam f -- campaign. will there be a republican candidate who can match george bush's ratings among black folks? did very well in key states. can he match that or can he even get -- nixon got about 17% of the black vote. was on the cover of jet magazine with sammy davis jr. i think that's the question. is there going to be a republican candidate who can match that and whether or not it's christie. >> and the question, does s
, the white house claims, without president obama's knowledge. >>> u.s. ambassador to spain called on the carpet in madrid. today on capitol hill european union officials demanded answers from chairman of the house intelligence committee. >> i think confidence is damaged. we've identified some questions. therefore, we are -- have to work hard that confidence is established. >> what does this all mean for president obama's relationships with world leaders going forward. on six minute top cia officials talks about the fallout from the edward snowden leaks. >> this is the most serious leak, most serious compromise in the u.s. intelligence committee. >> because of the amount of it and the type. >> the amount and the type. >> website reboot. secretary of hhs kathleen sebelius faces questions on capitol hill wednesday after healthcare.gov went down over the weekend adding fuel to the criticism and more fodder for snl. >> i have a number of friendly tips to help you deal with those problems. for example, have you tried restarting your computer. sometimes it helps to turn the computer off
>>> this week on "the journal editorial report," obama care marches on, despite an apology for the rollout debacle and growing outrage over millions of dropped policies. president obama says it's full steam ahead for the controversial law. plus, new nsa leaks pit the spy agency against the administration. did the white house okay the surveillance of our allies? all that and our election preview from new jersey to virginia to colorado. a look at what's on the ballot this tuesday. >>> i'm as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of health care.gov. so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better, i apologize. >> welcome to "the journal editorial report." an apology from health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius who acknowledged the rollout of the affordable care act was, in fact, a debacle. despite the website woes and growing outrage over millions of dropped policies, president obama says it's full steam ahead. >> yes, this is hard. because the health care system's a big system. and it's complicated. and if it was hard doing it just
card on the obama care website. is it too soon to diagnose long term? and the start of this first saturday morning in november, we are feeling the excitement. we are counting down to election day 2013. polls will be opening less than 72 hours from right now. we are also learning a whole lot more of what happened behind the scenes during the last presidential election. new juicy details on the campaign change in the campaign. one potential contender is in hot water this week for plagerism. what exactly did rand paul say? where was it said before? most importantly, will there be long-term fallout for rand paul going forward? today on up against the clock, very exciting, we inaugurate the legends division. our first congressional slate of contestants. stick around for that. first, this weekend marked one full month since the launch of the obama care website october 1st. >> that rollout we can safely say has been an absolute disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind t
president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav
, bush 92% and barack obama coming in third at 75%. and here's a great upside down example of what this obstruction looks like. you have a situation now in which senator chuck grassley is basically saying that president obama, in trying to appoint a nominee to fill a vacate seat on that court is engaged in "court-packing." are we officially through the looking glass? >> well, i think we are in a period where it's going to be very hard for the government to function, and really, you're going to have to see a change in the parties. in california, the solution turned out to be the democrats getting the kind of majority where they could pass things without worrying about the filibusters or blocking. so, maybe that's the solution. >> yes, you just wrote a piece in which you basically think the path out of the wilderness from this sort of deadlock of destruction and obstruction and dysfunction is basically just winning all the way around. you point to california, the only way out of this is just overwhelming maximum majorities, but that's not plausible nationwide, is it? >> well, there's
you get cancelled and you get sick? are you covered? >>> a former competitor of president obama is weighing in on all of this, and governor mitt romney suggests the bumpy rollout of the affordable care act has put the president's legacy in jeopardy. >> the fact that a president sold it on the basis is that not true undermined the foundation of his second term. >> in minutes, governor romney sharing who he thinks could go all the way to the white house next time, and who he left off his list of 2016 republican stars. >>> also, you have heard the greatest claims about global warming. whether you believe it or think of it as a series, some scientists say they have the answer and know how to stop it skprbg the answer is on the right side of your screen. the former massachusetts governor and 2012 presidential nominee accused president obama of selling affordable care act to the american people as a lie. >> and the centerpiece of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again, fundamental to his plan was the right to keep their own insurance plan, and he knew that w
